10 REASONS WHY ARTIST GET TREATED LIKE TRASH.

                10 REASONS WHY ARTIST GET TREATED LIKE TRASH.

OF COURSE THERE ARE MORE THAN TEN REASONS WHY ARTIST ESPECIALLY RAP ARTIST GET LOOKED AT WITH A NEGATIVE EYE BUT, I ONLY FEEL LIKE GIVING TEN EXAMPLES. THIS DOESN’T REFLECT EVERY ARTIST BUT THE FEW THAT HAVE DIRECTION & TALENT GET OVER TAKEN MY THE MASSES THAT DON’T GET IT.

  1. QUALITY OF MUSIC

HOW MANY ARTIST OUT THERE HAVE MASTERED OR DECENTLY MIXED TRACKS ? DJ’S HATE BEING THE BLAME WHEN WHEN THE QUALITY OF YOUR MUSIC SUCKS. ARTIST, THE MUSIC MIGHT SOUND GOOD IN YOUR BASEMENT BUT ONCE ITS ON A REAL SOUND SYSTEM THE CHEAPNESS SHOWS.

  1. LACK OF BUSINESS SENSE HOW MANY OF YALL GOT RIGHTS TO YALL SONGS, TRACKS EVEN YALL NAME

IT KILLS ME THAT ARTIST CREATE SO MUCH MATERIAL BUT DO NOTHING TO PROTECT IT. IT REALLY KILLS ME WITH ARTIST HAVE THESE COMMON NAMES THAT MULTIPLE ARTIST HAVE. BE ORIGINAL AND PROTECT YOU ORIGINALITY.

  1. LACK OF PROFESSIONALISM HOW MANY ARTIST DO SOUND CHECK OR ARRIVE ON TIME TO PERFORM

TO MANY ARTIST FEEL THEY ARE TO IMPORTANT TO GET TO A SHOW ON TIME. EVEN WORSE YOU GET THERE AND THE ONLY PEOPLE YOU BRING WANT TO GET IN THE VENUE FREE. UP N COMING ARTIST WITH NO FAN BASE THIS IS A BIG PET PEEVE TO MOST PROMOTERS. HAVE YOUR MUSIC READY & HAVE A BACK UP PLAN.

  1. YALL CHEAP HOW MANY OF YALL SPEND/INVEST LESS THAN $100 ON YALL MUSIC A MONTH NO BUDGET

THE MUSIC BUSINESS IS A (BUSINESS). BUSINESS OWNERS SPEND MONEY INVESTING IN THEIR COMPANY. I DON’T SEE OTHER SMALL COMPANIES BEGGING FOR HAND OUTS ONLY ARTIST MOSTLY RAP ARTIST.

  1. NO PLAN 10 ARITST NO FRONT MAN

THE AGE OF WU TANG, OR ANY LARGE GROUP OF AFFILATED ARTIST IS OF A DYING BREED. WHY MUST IN CERTAIN SHOWS, SHOW CASES, AND CONCERTS, THE SAME GROUP OF 5-10 ARTIST PERFORM TOGETHER BUT UNDER A DIFFERENT HEADLINING NAME. THIS MAKES IT DIFFICULT FOR SERIOUS INQUIRES TO FIND OUT WHO’S WHO. ALSO IT DRAGS A SHOW OUT AND MAKES IT BORING BECAUSE WITH MOST UP & COMING ARTIST THE AVERAGE PERSON CAN ONLY TOLERATE SO MUCH YET YOU TRY TO OVER LOAD THEM WITH MATERIAL THAT THEY ARENT INTERESTED IN. ADVICE, PLEASE HAVE A FRONT MAN AND DON’T TRY TO OVER BRAND A NEW (UN FAMILIAR) LABEL WITH TO MANY NEW (UNFAMILAR) ARTIST.

  1. DO 100 SONGS 100 SHOWS ACCOMPLISH = 0

ITS SAD HOW I HEAR ARTIST BRAGGING ABOUT PERFORMING EVERYDAY OF THE WEEK, &/OR DROPPING A NEW SONG EVERY OTHER DAY. WHAT GOOD DOES IT DO TO PERFORM IN FRONT OF THE SAME PEOPLE EVERY WEEK. WHAT SENSE DOES IT MAKE TO PUSH NEW SONGS AND PEOPLE DON’T KNOW YOUR OLD MATERAIL.

  1. 7.ARTIST DONT TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ALL THE EXPOSURE ESPECIALLY ALL OF THE FREE OUTLETS

I UNDERSTAND YOU SHOOT FOR THE MOON LAND ON THE STARS, BUT WHEN YOU ARE FIRST COMING OUT YOU NOT ABOUT TO GET SPINS ON A MAJOR STATION #FACT. BUT SO MANY ARTIST IGNORE THE ONLINE SHOWS, THE BLOGTALKS, THE COLLEGE RADIO DJS, THE PUBLIC RADIO FORUMS. SAME THING WITH SHOWS A LOT OF YOU ARTIST AINT READY TO OPEN UP FOR THE NEXT BIG STAR. PRACTICE YOUR CRAFT AT SOME OF THESE SHOW CASES, PARTIES, OPEN MICS. THIS GAME IS ABOUT STARTING AT A LEVEL MASTERING THAT LEVEL AND THEN GRADUATING TO THE NEXT.

  1. LOYAL TO THE WRONG PEOPLE

I HAVE A SAYING THAT GOES “SOME PEOPLE RIDE THE WRING DICK INSTEAD OF SHAKING THE RIGHT HANDS. TOO MANY ARTIST SPEND ALL THIS TIME BEFRIENDING DJ’S THAT DON’T WANNA BE YOUR FRIEND, SPENDING MONEY WITH PROMOTERS THAT LAUGH AT YOUR PERFORMANCE., ATTEMPTING TO COLLAB WITH ARTIST THAT DON’T WANT TO COLLAB. YOU DON’T HAVE TO REACH OUT TO EVERYBODY THAT HAS A BUZZ AND HOPE TO GET ATTENTION GET A LOOYAL TEAM TOGETHER AND FORMULATE A PLAN THAT CAN GIVE YOU SOME SUCCESS.

  1. YALL LOOKING FOR SHORT CUTS STEADY GETTING DICKED/SCAMMED

IN LIFE PERIOD THERE ARE NO SHORT CUTS TO LONG TERM SUCCESS. YOU NEED A FOUNDATION

10   AFRAID TO TAKE CRITICISM

IN ST.LOUIS IF YOU TELL SOMEONE YOU DON’T LIKE THEY MUSIC YOU’RE A HATER, WHEN TRUTHFULLY MAYBE YOU JUST MAKE HORRIBLE MUSIC, OR MAYBE YOU NEED TO CHANGE UP SOMETHINGS THAT YOU WOULDN’T NO TO CHANGE UP WITH OUT RECEIVING FEEDBACK. DON’T BE AFRAID TO HEAR WHY SOMEONE DOESN’T LIKE YOUR MUSIC IT CAN HELP YOU MAKE THEM A FUTURE FAN.
